Fire is an important and controversial issue in protected area management in México. Public opinion perceive wildfires as one of the principal causes of forest degradation and government agencies in charge of forest management and conservation invest...
Alaska Fire Portal
The Alaska Fire Portal provides information about fire science and technology relevant to Alaska. Our goal is to provide "one-stop shopping" for resource managers, decision makers, scientists, students, and communities who want access to the results of efforts to understand and manage fire and fuels on lands in Alaska. Content may also be relevant to boreal forests of western Canada.
A substantial amount of the Alaska-related content was originally compiled through the FIREHouse project (the Northwest and Alaska Fire Research Clearinghouse), funded by the Joint Fire Science Program, and its two related projects: the Alaska Reference Database, (which was merged the FRAMES Resource Catalog, accessible through the "Catalog Records" tab below) and the Alaska Fire and Fuels Research Map, hosted through the AICC ArcIMS mapping website.

Wayne Harrison was a leader and innovator, working for decades in fire ecology and prescribed fire. As a lasting contribution to the fire ecology and management community, Wayne's family partnered with the Association for Fire Ecology (AFE) after his passing in June 2019 to create the Wayne Harrison Memorial Scholarship to support the academic and professional growth of students through funding research, management, or education projects related to wildland fire science.
Scholarships up to $2,500 will be awarded annually, with applications due March 31 and awarded by May 31.
The International Association of Wildland Fire would like to invite you to participate, either as a mentor or mentee, in their Mentoring Program.
For more information on the program and how to apply, visit the link below.
Please help the Southwest Fire Science Consortium evaluate their impact on the fire community. Have they affected how you interact with your science and/or management colleagues or how you use or share science?
